Sounds very easy to make, and great to come home to. Great with some rice, added in at bottom of dish. Another one of my great finds. For drama, serve the stew in bread bowls, to make one, hollow out a crusty bun, leaving 1/2-inch thick shell. Enjoy.

I was going to submit, but found it when searching for duplicates. I got it from Canadian Living site. Nothing gourmet outstanding, but just plain ole good soul food which my better half likes.

Prepared exactly as described and it was delicious. Overall, a very good recipe, but a bit bland. Suggest adding garlic and a bit of a concentrated gravy flavoring to give it a bit more of a punch. Am looking forward to the leftovers, as this preparation should only get better with a little time in the fridge. Many thanks for the contribution!
